    I could be happily entertained with my choice of ten movies already mentioned by others. However, my ten additions are:

    Spartacus
    The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
    Once Upon a Time in the West
    The Bridge on the River Kwai
    The Best Years of Our Lives
    The Naked Spur (James Stewart, Janet Leigh, Ralph Meeker, and the worst wading accident ever)
    The Quiet Man
    The Searchers
    Runaway Train
    The Professionals (Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale,
    Jack Palance, Woody Strode, and Robert Ryan - any questions?)

    p.s. Why didn't someone start this two months ago, when we were in the middle of the Long, Dark Tunnel?:mad:

    Michael Clayton is simply outstanding. My testosterone level went up a couple notches after seeing that one. Terrific ending.

    Don't forget Three Kings, We Were Soldiers, The Constant Gardner, Master and Commander, Platoon, Scarface, Raging Bull, Chinatown and Wise Guys.

    Not to hijack the thread, but for anyone who enjoyed 'Ice Road Truckers' on History Channel last year, they've got a new one starting March 14 called 'Ax Men', about working in the logging industry.

    Hard to pick from what isn't up already.
    I would like to add;

    The Boondock Saints: (probably the best movie to never release in theatres because of political pressure because it is about vigilantes and it would have released right after the columbine shooting) It is also my wifes favorite "guy" movie.

    Platoon: First truly realistic Vietnam era movie I ever saw. Very grounding after growing up on Rambo.

    Everything else I saw listed already.
